Question about 1988 Chrysler New Yorker
I pray someone out there can help us. We are stuck in West VA an want to go home. To make a very long story short the mechanic can't guarantee that replacing the fuel pump will fix the problem. At this point, I'd like to feel safe driving driving back home ~ and not keep having to pay for tows & having to rely on total strangers for help. This '88 Chrysler New Yorker has only been sitting since March, only a few months. When we got in to start it up. it kept stalling out. we put a gas can of gas in the car. reved up the engine for a while. then we managed to drive for a little while. we check all the belts, all fluides....now ... the fuel filter & the vacuum hose has been replaced. We've put gas treatment in the tank...sprayed some carb cleaner. rewired the fan to cool down the radar so now that seems to of solved that issue. but it's still caughing & choking and stalling out sometimes. The A/C is not working either but we feel that is a seperate challenge in it self. Compresure maybe, Who knows ~ I'll drive in the heat at this point... I just want to know what to fix, so we can go home. 9:30pm Wed. June 11,'08 Thank You So very much 4 your help. God Bless you, Diane
I had a later model new yorker ... 1994 i think. that did something similar. after engine heated up, it would stall as i came to a stop. then wouldnt start until the engine cooled off. It turned out to be the crankshaft position sensor. hopefully this can help someone, as i am a little late for diane, :( sorry

Hi, I just had the very same situation on a '90 New Yorker. The fuel pump has gone bad in your car, have it replace and that should take care of it. As for the A/C, yes, that could be a different challenge. Don't let the fuel level get below 1/8 th of a tank. Fuel is what keeps the fuel pump cool.
